Cambodia

Correct. Visiting one of the “Killing Fields” & later the prison/detention centre was possibly one of the most harrowing travel experiences I’ve had.

The answer I have for his surname is Buonarroti. His full name is Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni.

According to Google "The name Simoni originated from the personal name Simon, itself a derivative of the Hebrew name “Sim’on,” from the verb “sama” meaning “to listen.” Thus, the name Simoni means “God has listened,” referring to the gratitude of the parents who, having wished for a child, had their prayers answered."

Cambodia (Was lucky enought to visit Angkor Wat, et al, a couple of years ago).

Q355. Famed for his Sistine Chapel frescoes, what was Michaelangelo’s surname?
I think he had quite a few othernames, but the last one I think was Simoni.

Q351. Does the 1922 Committee consist of the backbenchers or front bench members of the Conservative party?
Not sure, but I think it’s the back benchers to give them an opportunity to put their views forward.

Q352. The Mojave Dessert is primarily in which American state?
More or less on the border at the edge of California?

Robert Diniro
Backbenchers, front benchers are the cabinet.
Not sure, choice is California and the other Nevada. Las Vegas is in the desert and that is Nevada so will go with Nevada, final answer.

Well done you both got balance, but from an aesthetics point of view the coverage is also important

Jake the pake with his wooden leg

Digestion
I know it’s the training ground for SAS & SBS but not sure of the counties. I will go with Powys and a couple of the Glamorgans.
Like ‘Jake the pake with his wooden leg’ I think it acts as a Kangaroos 3rd leg to aid balance and momentum.
